Aird Island settlement

I see that in 1901 census (searching the Cameron family) that there were people living on Aird Island. Having visited it over 45-50 years ago, I was surprised, I had not realized that it was ever settled.

Does anyone know what business was there in 1901 that employed people. I can't imagine that farming on an island would be profitable. I tried the internet but did not find any information.
